When we visit http://youtube.com/my_history, we can see our own YouTube browsing history.

Is there a way to see the YouTube history page of another user?

This would be a direct privacy violation, therefore such feature mustn't be available, and isn't.

However, we can see others' favorites (unless it is disabled) and under some circumstances (such as sharing your activities on Twitter, Facebook, etc.) Liked videos.

ok so is it true to say that our history is never, and will never be viewable by anyone else other than anyone with access to our account? – Pacerier Jun 12 '11 at 1:23
Yes, this is true. And if you are still worried, you can clear the history – Oleh Prypin Jun 12 '11 at 7:17
